This Day in History; Constitution, "Dead or Alive"

I love days that are full of history, like today, September 17:

1787: U.S. Constitution signed.
1814: Francis Scott Key finishes this little poem called the Star Spangled Banner
1908: First Airplane fatality
1920: NFL Organized
1947: James V. Forrestal is sworn in as the first Secretary of Defense of United States
1976: Space Shuttle Enterprise unveiled by NASA
1978: Camp David Accords are signed
2001: George W Bush declares Osama bin Laden "Wanted: Dead or Alive"

Who would have guessed that seven short years later, we would be further away from finding him.
